Our team brings a medical kit on the climb (All items marked with a ‘*’), however we suggest you bring your own personal supply.

Which includes the following:

Antihistamine: for allergic symptoms, sedation, nausea *

Decongestant: Sudafed for dry up noses and sinuses *

Aspirin and Paracetamol (not ibuprophen): for minor aches and headaches *

Lozenges: for cough and throat  *

Broad of spectrum antibiotics e.g. Cipro *

Canesten cream: for athlete’s foot *

Sun block: to prevent sunburn at high altitude *

Strapping and bandages
